New Theory of Diabetes
New Theory of Diabetes
Old theory believed that diabetes is caused by lack of insulin, and the whole treatment protocol is designed, based on that belief. When they find a new diabetic person with a high blood sugar level then they explain their belief. People also believe them because they are doctors with authority.
They prescribe a pill which increases the production of insulin in the pancreas. This pill whips the pancreas to produce more insulin. This whipping works in a similar manner as it works on horses to run faster.
Whipping the pancreas pushes to produce more insulin instantly. Initially, it works well but gradually it loses its power and less insulin is produced with the same pill. Now they increase the number of pills to get more insulin just like whipping horses harder to make them run faster.
A higher amount of insulin can overcome resistance and push more sugar into cells. This brings down blood sugar levels and it feels that they are right. Lack of insulin is causing diabetes. They are focusing on decreasing blood sugar levels, and they achieved it.
The concept of insulin resistance was presented in 1989 and since then we know that decreasing insulin resistance can reverse diabetes permanently without any medicine. There is a limited amount of carbohydrates your body can process and beyond that, it increases insulin resistance and blood sugar level. Knowing your carbohydrate tolerance limit can help you keep your blood sugar under control.
The Carbohydrate tolerance limit depends upon your daily physical activity and your genes. People carrying the gene of insulin resistance may have a lesser carbohydrate tolerance limit and people with good physical activity may have a higher carbohydrate tolerance limit. Insulin resistance can be transferred genetically. You can decide to bring your insulin resistance down from today onwards, this will change your life, and this may change the life of the next generation as well.
Insulin resistance is a dietary habit-based problem, and we receive the majority of our dietary habits from our families. Your food habit or choice of food you eat is a family tradition. We transfer our food habits to the next generation, so we transfer insulin resistance. We all like the food which we have eaten since our childhood.
We are using the word food habit because what we eat is a habit and habits can be changed. Eating sweets after a meal is a habit which is promoted through advertisements also. Earlier people use to buy sweets only on the special occasion. If you offer sweets to someone they will ask "Is there any good news" because we always associate eating sweets with celebration or some auspicious beginning.
Today we buy sweets for no reason. Some people even keep sweets at home all the time. We correlate celebration with sweets and celebration means happiness. We all want to be happy and if eating sweets is a sign of happiness then we want to feel, that we are happy.
Eating high carbohydrate food is the first step toward diabetes and this is a habit-based behavioural problem. The development of insulin resistance is the second step toward diabetes. Reversing this trend requires systematic change and the first step starts with changing the behaviour.
Changing the behaviour requires a strong motive. If you believe in living a healthy disease-free life, then this motive is strong enough to change your eating behaviour. Changing the behaviour also requires conviction or belief that it is possible to live a diabetes-free life. Belief comes with knowledge.
Knowledge comes from reading books or listening to knowledgeable people. This book is designed to share knowledge with you about diabetes and its reversal.
